Attorney contributor Brian Kent, represents gun injury victims in Illinois. Brian helps bar shooting victims and their families in private civil lawsuits get the justice they deserve. During a recent interview, he sought to answer the common question "can I sue for being shot at a bar?"
"Like other commercial property owners, bar owners are required by law to keep their premises free from avoidable danger such as shootings and stabbings. These property owners must offer ample security measures, such as hired security personnel, video surveillance cameras, and sufficient lighting in all parking areas. In fact, if the bar owner neglected to maintain the property's security, they may be held accountable in a lawsuit."
"Too often we see that bar shootings are a result of negligent security or other forms of property owner neglect. Victims may have reasonable grounds to file a lawsuit against the negligent bar owner if they can proven the crime was foreseeable. For instance, if the area or bar had a history of violence, yet the owner failed to increase its security to reduce the risk, they could found liable for the foreseeable crime. Victims injured in bar shootings should explore their legal rights with an experienced gun injury lawyer."
